Roybal, Tonita – Bowl with Feather Design (1920’s)
6.25"w x 4.5"h
Tonita Roybal remains one of the great innovative names in San Ildefonso pottery. This bowl reflects the exceptional nature of her pottery designs, shapes, and firing. The piece is one of her classic shapes with a sharp shoulder and sloping sides. The design is a feather pattern that is open at the rim and extends down to the shoulder. It is highly polished and fired to a dark silvery black appearance. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed, “Tonita” in the clay on the bottom. The signature indicates it is from the late 1920s.
